HARC 20-mile Challenge Hike

September 25, 2021

HARC HIKE for Hunger & HopeAre you a serious hiker or want a serious challenge?  Join us for the annual HARC Challenge Hike on Saturday, September 25, 2021.  A small group of hardy souls will be hiking the Appalachian Trail from Pen Mar Park to Caledonia, PA – a total of 20 mountainous miles.  This is a one-way hike with transportation back to Pen Mar Park and Hagerstown.  We’ll have support along the way with water and Gatorade refills and snacks, and a good lunch.  Enjoy camaraderie and encouragement on the trail as our group is led by Rev. Ed Poling.  Registration cost is only $50 if you raise $200 in donations OR bypass fundraising and donate $250 at time of registration.
